".....Disassembler is the latest project to come from the pen of Trevor Warren, bandleader of the World Jazz group DEVA.
Exploring the electric guitar properly for the first time on cd Trevor is attempting to bring together all his many influences, from jazz to rock, drum n bass to hip hop, ambient to thrash, this band is none of these things but a reflection of all... With the undeniable quality of the other musicians, Mark Lockheart on Saxes and Bass Clarinet; Loz Speyer on Trumpet and Flugelhorn; Dudley Phillips on Bass and Seb Rochford on Drums, this group has a distinctive and powerful presence, quite unlike anything else around today...."
"(Warren) picks cyclically, with a spangled tone, perched somewhere adjacent to the sounds of Bill Frisell, Ry Cooder and John Abercrombie. On the opening "Engines Of Creation", Sebastian Rochford maintains a rapping snare figure, Dudley Phillips worms out an intestinal bassline, whilst Mark Lockheart blows a red- cheeked tenor solo. This is a configuration that sets the tone and pace for much of the subsequent proceedings, with the Disassembler crew dedicated to the exploration of accumulated textures, evolving rhythms and sustained thoughtfulness. Lockheart is the chief soloist, but his bandmates usually keep up a constant weaving of melodic interaction, following the way of the democratic voice. Although this could loosely be called a groove project, its funk is mostly mellow, but not sickly in its lightness. The Disassembler feel isn't anywhere near as scrap- heaped as their name suggests. They prefer to spray the automobile in a soft lather rather than crush its mangled parts into a dry cube. This is no bad deal, as their introversion has a meaningful pulse, and is never mellow equalling bland".
